Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Cookies

pumpkin spice oatmeal cookies

In honor of National Pumpkin Day and because we love pumpkin at our house (well,
some of us do anyway), I'm sharing a fun recipe for delicious Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal
Cookies. I combined my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe with these delicious pumpkin
spice chips I picked up at the market the other day. I knew I could put them to good use
and when I made Oatmeal Scotchies the other day, it hit me that these pumpkin chips
would work perfectly to make a fun pumpkin treat.

If you love all things pumpkin or have some in your house, then it's time to whip up a
batch of these and make those tummies happy! They are quick and easy to bake up,
the leave your house smelling delicious, and they are super yummy. They have the right
bit of spice and pumpkin. So, even if you're not a pumpkin lover, you just might like them.

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp cinnamon (and maybe a dash more)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups quick oats or old fashioned oats
10 oz bag pumpkin spice chips


{1} Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.

{2} Cream together in your mixer the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy. It takes 
about 2-3 minutes to get the right fluffiness.

{3} Beat the in the eggs and vanilla until well combined.

{4} In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and oats. I have
used both quick and old fashioned oats and I like them the same. The old fashioned
oats are larger and so they make the cookies slightly chewier, but still delicious.

{5} Spray or line your cookie sheets with parchment paper. Then, using a large cookie
scoop drop 12 scoops of dough 2" apart.

{6} Bake for about 12 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the cookie sheet for
at least 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
